Poggio al Vento. Average height: 350 m above sea level. Planted in 1974.

Weather conditions:
After a cold and occasionally snowy winter, some positiveweather events produced a little water accumulation in the soil. The spring wasquite warm. The summer was very hot and without rain. The rains of earlySeptember restored the balance to some extent favouring the ripening of theSangiovese grape. The overall drought led to a noticeable reduction of yields withsmall berries and great concentration of the grapes.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called “Brunello” coming from the Col d’Orcia selection. The choice of the harvest time was based on finding the perfect ripeness to produce a long-lived, structured wine. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches, in the vineyard at first and then on the selection table in the cellar. Vintage 2010 yield: 40 q/ha.

Fermentation at controlled temperature of 28°C. in stainless steel tanks of 50 and 60 hl. The different areas of the vineyard were kept separate. During the maceration, that lasted 20-25 days, daily pump-over and long “delestages” were carried out. Mallolactic fermentation took place in concrete. From there the wine went directly into barrels in the spring of 2013.

3 years in Slavonian and Allier oak barrels of 25 and 75 hl. followed by about 24 months of further aging in bottle in a temperature controlled environment.
